“Welcome to the John C. Reilly and friends roots review. roots music. it’s just another way of saying good old music that has survived the passing of time. Folk, traditional, bluegrass, close-harmony, country. whatever labels people have tried to stick to good music through the ages are irrelevant. It’s that song that touches something deeper, that makes ancient sense to your soul. The tree of music has deep roots which go back to these songs. Conceived and sung around lonesome campfires, rain- soaked ships decks, whispering mountain pines or dusty barren farmland they stand the test of time and keep our souls alive. Join your host John C. Reilly and some incredible singers and musicians as they summon the spirits of the tree of song, from deep down in the roots. You just might feel better somehow.” – John C. Reilly

Rae Morris is an 19 year old singer-songwriter from Blackpool. Learning the piano from an early age and forver underestimating her ability , Rae recently found a voice she didn’t know she had. Make your own comparisons, but be sure to notice a girl of maturity beyond her years. Cleverly matching her inimitable voice to songs of new experiences, those defining challenges like love and not always being able to have the answers, Rae is the epitome of raw and claimes nothing else.
